Requirement Of Absinthe Info

Since there has been an Absinthe revival in many countries over the past few years, many people are seeking Absinthe info.

“La Fee Verte” or “The Green Fairy” is the nickname of Absinthe. It is distilled usually with a wine base and a variety of herbail ingredients, unlike the alcoholic beverages beer and cider which are fermented.

Absinthe is prepared from common wormwood, artemisia absinthium which gives it it’s name and taste. Countries like the USA regulated the use of thujone so fake Absinthes were manufactured there which do not contain wormwood.

Absinthe is also prepared with the other herbs and essential oils like Fennel, green aniseed, star anise, hyssop, lemon balm, juniper, angelica, licorice, dittany, coriander, nutmeg and sweet flag. It is the essential oils in Absinthe that causes it to louche when mixed with water. The oils are soluble in alcohol but not in water and so cause the drink to go cloudy.

Absinthe Info about the Ban

The prohibition movement claimed that Absinthe was harmful and that drinking Absinthe led to “Absinthism” which was characterized by convulsions, fits, madness, brain damage and ultimately death. People claimed that thujone can give rise to psychedelic effects and so it is dangerous. It was thought that Absinthe contained a high quantity of thujone and was extremely toxic and dangerous. The use of Absinthe was illegal in many countries in the early 1900s.

These statements and claims regarding to Absinthe are totally unreal. Thujone can be dangerous but only in large quantities. From the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries it was believed that Absinthe contain as much as 350mg of thujone per kg which recent studies have shown to be 6mg per kg. One has to drink sufficient amount of Absinthe for thujone to be of any danger!

Absinthe has now been legalized in most countries and there are many types and styles available:-

– Clear Absinthe – This is known as La Bleue or Blanche Absinthe and is commonly distilled in Switzerland.

– La Verte – This is traditional green Absinthe, the Green Fairy.

Spanish Alicante Anise gives the sweet taste to the Spanish Absinthe.

– Bohemian or Czech style Absinthe – Also known as Absinth, it is a wormwood bitter, rather than an Absinthe, which does not contain other herbs such as aniseed or fennel.
